Subject RE: [doc] First App -> Example App
Date Wed, 24 Nov 2004 13:45:14 GMT

Go ahead, build the WAR, index page, and put it in a Bugzilla
enhancement item please.  I'd done part of this, including the WAR for
the example webapp, in the past.  I put it on my site,
and it was downloaded a number of times, but I accidentally deleted the
relevant directory tree a few months ago ;(

Happy thanksgiving to all,

Yoav Shapira
